economist said, ian sheped heardson said a big bucket of cold water. 18,000 jobs created overall. the estimates ranged from 80,000 to 125,000. market and economists expected more jobs creation than that. when you dig within the numbers you can see government jobs were shed. wow. thousands. 57,000 private sector jobs created but 39,000 government jobs lost. unemployment rate went up. so this tells you, kyra, bottom line, that private companies are not confident to hire in big numbers at all and the government, local and state government, because of budget cuts, continue to slash jobs. this is what the trajectory looks like. we have come from massive job losses there over about a year ago 192,000 four months of bad jobs and then you saw job created and it petered out. another thing when we dig into the numbers. you look at the revisions and what prior months were changed either higher or lower and we found another 44,000 jobs we thought had been created weren't. so it was other months revised down about 44,000. manufacturing, construction, temporary services and jobs in these areas

. they do, however, believe she's no longer in central florida. when she left the jail, you saw the big crowds there. there were people yelling "killer" in that crowd as she got into the suv and left. there is a great deal of emotion still unresolved around this case. we saw a lot of people getting together who were doing something peaceful with those emotions over the weekend. they went to the site where caylee anthony's body was discovered and held a march from that site to the anthony home. all to remember the child whose death started all of this. it was a very solemn occasion. a lot of people walking in the street. at one point it was reported there were cars lined up on the road about a half mile long of people just parking on the roadside going into those woods where her body was discovered to go to that spot and remember that little girl. again, a great deal of emotion. people trying to process all of this on their own. but casey anthony at the moment is still staying out of the public eye even though she has a lot of legal entanglements she will still have to address in the mon
ahead of the briefing. pushing support for this gang of six plan and it's a big one, kiran. that would include $500 billion in immediate cuts and there would be tax increases approximately to the tune of $1 trillion and it would tackle intij entitlement reform. you're saying doesn't it sound like the grand bargain that president obama was pursuing with speak boehner and was a no-go on the impasse on tax increases? exactly right. this is a big plan and there is something in this plan, i think, for everyone to hate. for republicans insisting no tax increases even on the wealthy and for democrats who are very concerned about medicare cuts, even though the program solvency is threatened. >> brianna keilar, we are watching every single second of this debt deal of the negotiations. we will be talking a lot more in the next couple of hours, next couple of days. >>> minnesota congresswoman michele bachmann getting more attention on the campaign trail. another poll showing she is making inroads with gop voters? >> reporter: she sure is what the polls indicate. yesterday she was in the spotlight
the arrest of rebekah brooks. she's out on bail right now, but her arrest over the weekend a big surprise. >> reporter: yeah. i mean, she was -- the length that she was detained for was incredible as well. 12 hours she spent -- more than 12 hours in a police station in london answering questions, and she wasle only released around midnight last night local time. so that was a huge development in this. she's out on police bail now, but that doesn't mean she's excused from appearing before a committee of mps tomorrow london time. she's still going to turn up and be careful about what she says, and the politicians are going to have to be careful about what they ask her as well. there could be a trial down the track if she's charged, and therefore they're going to make sure under the rules here that they don't sort of prejudice any forthcoming trial. nevertheless i think she's going to get a pretty tough interrogation at the hands of politicians as will her former bosses rupert and james murdoch who appear now separately from her before the same committee tomorrow afternoon. >> dan, let me as

. but it remains to be seen whether there will be a big enough reduction in great that for that to happen, and whether they have managed to build a fire wall around greece. >> do you think this deal is just another sticking plaster? >> i think it will be difficult for this deal completely to save greece. it is not clear, because we are not seeing all the details. the reduction in debt that private debt holders are expected to take is not that big. it is a reduction of 20% in the net present value. unless the official debt is good to come in with gigantic amounts of money -- greece is going to still have a giant debt burden. it is difficult because the greek growth rate is not high and the government has trouble collecting taxes. unless greece suddenly becomes much more productive and competitive, it is likely they will have to come back and do another debt reduction further down . >> is this bailout ultimately political by leaders who want to save the eurozone, red and economic? >> when it comes to saving the eurozone, the two are intertwined. you could be more cynical and say it is to do

have a big hole to fill. each new job, that was created last month is good news for the people who are back at work. and for the families that they take care of. and for the communities that they are a part of. but, our economy as a whole just isn't producing nearly enough jobs for everybody who's looking. we have always known that we'd have ups and downs on the way back from this recession. over the past few months the economy has experienced some tough headwinds from the natural disasters to spikes in gas prices to state and local budget cuts that have cost tens of thousands of cops and firefighters and teachers their jobs. the problems in greece and in europe along with uncertainty over whether the debt limit here in the united states will be raised have also made businesses hesitant to invest more aggressively. the economic challenges we face were not created overnight, and they are not going to be solved overnight. but the american people expect us to act on every single good idea that is out there. i read letter after letter from folks hit hard from this economy, and none of

speaker john boehner today. not going for a big huge deal now. this is part of what chuck schumer had to say -- >> shannon: your response? >> i suspect that is more of the grand politics that you hear playing out there. because it was never put on the table. the kind of reform that john boehner has been asking for, the kind of reform i'm talking about. what was put on the table was again, tax hikes on the wealthy. so that we can do less spending reduction. we've got to get out of that paradigm. we've got to get out of the politics. some of the politics poll really well. one of the problem we're having now is pollsters are at full employment. and politicians are following what they are telling them. it's telling them on the one hand don't put social security or medicare on the table. don't talk about those things. on the other hand, just talk about taxing the rich. you will be fine. but that doesn't help us get to a solution. >> shannon: we certainly hope that you find one. we know you are busy not only with the gang of six or five or whatever it currently stands to be but with everyth
